… a little about me
I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. A visual thinker with a wild imagination, I work with traditional and digital tools to create visual concepts and design elements. Whether travelling towards solution or expression, the path I’m on is shaped by the places I’ve been (art schools, teaching art, working and collaborating professionally), along with a devoted desire to explore art forms and portray inspiration in perceptible ways.
Welcome to my portfolio, where you can view examples of traditional paintings & drawings, graphic & web design work, as well as illustrations and handcrafted mixed media.

Every brand is different and has its own unique story to tell, which is why I find designing logos both inspiring and exciting.
Combining graphic design & visual inspiration with technical skills, I create custom-built websites to tell each client's story.
From one-off brochures and illustrations to large-scale branding projects; I bring colour, style, typography and market research, to help generate interest with your intended audience.
The medium demands a unique combination of complete concentration and relaxation, where ink and thoughts flow freely onto paper as the drawing takes shape.
I have been fascinated by and drawn to cards for as long as I can remember. Seeing each deck as a portable treasure box filled with stories; I bring ink, colour and imagination to tell stories and bring characters to life.
I love the hands-on, multi-stage process of creating wearable art jewels, where colour and imagination come together in small-size canvas creations available to buy on Nine Lives Art.
These pen and ink drawings are inspired by my love of the ever changing ocean and majestically beautiful tall ships, where safe passage is in the hands of the wind, the waves and the deep blue sea.
These pen and ink drawings are inspired by my love of the ocean and ships, no doubt inherited from the many seafaring folk in my family. I am fascinated and drawn to tales of majestically beautiful tall ships and the ever changing oceans, where safe passage is in the hands of the wind, the waves and the deep blue sea.
